High-potential Insulator of Novel


An insulator for high-tension lines which embodies many novel features has been invented by Louis Steinberger of New York city, who has been granted a patent on the invention. The principal feature of the insulator is the provision of two hoods between which the line wire is clamped, each of these hoods being of special construction, as is also the clamping device. The accompanying diagrams show the general design of the insulator. Fig. 1 is a central longitudinal section, above which is shown a plan view of the lower hood. Fig. 2 is a transverse central section taken at right angles to the one shown in the lower part of Fig. 1.
